olloclip, one of the best brands in smartphone lens attachments, today rolled out a new line of Pro and intro lenses that will expand the view of the iPhone’s native camera.

The new lenses, which include super-wide and telephoto pro lenses, are part of olloclip’s expanding Connect X line, a mount-lens system developed for the iPhone X.

olloclip has been making innovative clip-on lenses since 2011 but have released retooled products recently to meet the bar set by each new generation of iPhone camera.

In May, olloclip released a new mount for the iPhone X that works with any of its lenses. In August, it came out with a universal clip that could mount olloclip lenses to any smartphone.

olloclip is currently developing a lens mount dedicated to the iPhone XS/XS Max and iPhone XR. The company said the new universal clip will work on the newest handsets.

The new products give customers two price points. The Intro Lens is wide-macro combo meant for the iPhone user considering their first attachment. It is available on the olloclip website for $39.95. Buying only one of the lenses runs $19.99.

The two pro lenses are olloclip’s brightest, meaning the lenses gather in more light and cover a larger usable image area. They can be used with older generation iPhones with the proper mounting clip or case.

The Super-Wide Pro Lens goes wider with less distortion, according to olloclip.

The Pro Telephoto has 2X magnification and also pulls in more light for dimly-lit shooting environments. Both Pro lenses are available for $119.95 with a clip or $99.99 without.
